‘Dr. Joe Rogan’ Trends on Twitter After Aaron Rodgers Says He Sought Podcast Host’s COVID Advice

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Friday he sought “alternative treatments” instead of the NFL-endorsed COVID-19 vaccinations because he is “allergic” to an ingredient in two of the FDA-approved shots.

Speaking on “The Pat McAfee Show on YouTube and SiriusXM,” Rodgers vowed, “I’m not an anti-vax, flat-earther. I have an allergy to an ingredient that’s in the mRNA vaccines. I found a long-term immunization protocol to protect myself and I’m very proud of the research that went into that.” Rodgers, who has been tested daily as part of NFL protocols for the unvaccinated, did not say what ingredient he was allergic to, or how he knows he is allergic.

Rodgers learned he had contracted COVID-19 from a test he took on Wednesday. The reigning NFL MVP said he “didn’t feel well on Thursday” but was “much better” on Friday. He can’t rejoin the Packers for 10 days and will miss Green Bay’s game against Kansas City on Sunday. He must have a negative test to return to the team on November 13th.

Rodgers strongly questioned the NFL’s protocols, along with any organization forcing health requirements on individuals. “I believe strongly in bodily autonomy and the ability to make choices for your body, not to have to acquiesce to some woke culture or crazed group of individuals who say you have to do something,” he said. “Health is not a one-size-fits-all for everybody, and for me, it involved a lot of study in the offseason.”

During the interview with McAfee, Rodgers misquoted the CDC website and offered his explanation for why hasn’t taken the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. He said the CDC’s website says “should you have an allergy to any of the ingredients, you should not get one of the mRNA vaccines. So those two (Moderna and Pfizer) were out already.” Instead, the CDC site says, “If you have had a severe allergic reaction or an immediate allergic reaction — even if it was not severe — to any ingredient in an mRNA COVID-19 vaccine, you should not get either of the currently available mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.”

 

Rodgers did not say he had an allergic reaction. But he has “consulted” with his friend and podcast host, Joe Rogan, who is not a medical doctor. Twitter was enjoying that aspect of the story well into Saturday evening, as “Dr. Joe Rogan” trended along with Aaron Rodgers.
